    Hey Adam,

    I really want to say that I have been able to be strong and get things going but I have to admit that I haven’t been able to do as much as I need. I have still been walking and my weight has been able to maintain because of that but I have not been able to do much else. I really need to figure this out again because I was doing really well for a while but then things just fell apart.

    AJ, I know that it has been a while and of course you have become super busy. Just letting you know I am still alive barely. I have been swamped at work and haven’t been doing as much at all. Also I have been dealing with major back issues, it feels like it will spasm and pinch on the left side of my spine. It can be very painful. With that said, this is the week that I work back everything into my routine. I am planning to start with the yoga and stretches and then really get a handle on my eating. Just think about me as I try to lock this down.

    Thanks, Adam. I will try to remember to post as well. I have been trying to reintroduce my yoga positions and of course I am always wanting to do a new 30 day challenge. The one I am stretching out right now is a squat/crunch challenge. The end result is 150 squats and 100 crunches.

    Thanks Adam, I needed that reminder/motivation. I do feel bad that I am falling down on everything health wise but I am only able to do so much. If I have learned one thing through the years is that when my body is stressed out to the max I won’t be able to do anymore regardless of my good intentions. I am really trying to create a new routine in but it is very slow going. I am sure I will figure it out at some point.

    Sorry I haven’t been updating as well. We have been going through a lot of schedule changes and I have been falling behind on a lot of things lately.

    I have to admit, I am struggling to get my additional things in above my daily walking on my lunch break.

    Well I decided to be crazy and do another one of those squat/crunch challenges. I know I can do squats but this challenge is living up to it’s name so far, I currently am on Day 11 which is 45 squats and 25 crunches. That should be easy but when you have only had 2 rest days in those 11 days you can feel the burn in the legs.

    Thanks, I am hoping to stay focused this week. Have a great week Adam.

    I would love the option of having that as part of my routine but unfortunately it’s not an option. My husband and I have thrown out the idea of building our own pool but that is not something in the next 10 years. 🙁

    Swimming can actually be less painful on the joints. If you take a look at the athletes that swim they are in some of the best shape. Of course I am to short to look to much like them. 😉

    For me I have enjoyed watching the swimming and the beach volleyball. I may never be able to do the things those athletes do but I certainly enjoy watching them compete.

    Let’s just say that I have been more interested in watching the Olympics on tv instead of doing my own stuff. This past couple of weeks just have been hard for me for many reasons but this week I am buckling down again.

    Thanks so much Adam. I will defiantly look over these videos and go from here.

    Your the Best Adam! I look forward to seeing the videos. I have another challenge of doing up to 100 burpees in a day and I didn’t want to start the challenge unless you though it was a good idea for my back.

    Thanks

    Got a question Adam. Do you think Burpees would be a good exercise for me to do?

    I like it, even without your usual colorfullness. That’s definitely what I need to remember for sure. I have in my mind what I’d like to accomplish but don’t see the results and it’s disheartening most of the time.
